Does this mean that a virmidi port just serves for sending copies of
MIDI data to different sequencers/sound generators?

Can I use vkeybd or a MIDI keyboard connected to the MIDI in of a MIDI
interface to play a virtual synthesizer without using virmidi?

Thanks for any comments.

Cordially, Ismael
